: 1 report = Perma ban? Help me out community
You can't get permabanned accounts back unless it was an incorrect ban, which probably wasn't the case here. Your only option is to create a new account and try avoid new punishments. My easy tip is never type any phrases. Use pings instead. Pings are also a good way to unload anger since you can spam ping stuff and as far as I know none have gotten banned for that.

: Or MAYBE S4-S2 is where you belong. You literally have a thousand ranked games this year. Thats much more time needed to sort out your true MMR
This. I am sure a lot of people overrate their own skills and think they deserve a better rank while the truth is they suck at the game precisely as much/often as those who get blamed... Being stuck in a certain rank for 1000 games is solid proof OP is a casual player crying for no reason. Think about this: If you self were more skillfull and would be able to win lanes most of the time, it wouldn't matter that much if theres a 50% chance of having a "monkey" on your team. By beating your lane consistently, you should automatically get more victories regardless of the 50/50 matchmaking. Players need to stop believing their doings have no impact for match outcomes. Ranked is not lottery. Do you think people hit diamond or challenger by luck?

: Godtier KDA yet always losing
Dude you are certainly doing something wrong if you have such KDA yet 34% WR, it cannot be pure unluck. I bet it would be very easy to carry bronze games alone if you play mid/top and after getting a good lead you focus on pushing. Edit: Comparing your KDA vs Challenger has no point since you are in bronze. You should only compare it with others from the same rank. Also KDA is not a meaningful factor for measuring how valuable you were for your team. Edit 2: You claim that "it's all up to the matchmaker". This can be proven false simply by letting someone else (higher tier player) play on your account. Go ahead and see what happens, there is no curse in the matchmaking.

: Move duo to flexque
Great idea, I support. The only thing which could get worse is more people might start buying eloboost services since you wouldn't be able to get boosted by your duo partner any longer.

: Why is "It's not ranked" acceptable as an excuse to troll around
Because it's just normals really, no1 should care what happens in those games honestly. If I'm not allowed to suck or play half sleep there, then where??? It's you who have to go premade if you want a trustworthy team in quickplay.
: Clarification on open mid?
If most players agree to open there won't be much reports that would lead to punishments.

: Gragas 46% winrate, Ivern and Nunu 40% winrate
Gragas is most effective as a tank support in my opinion, wouldn't run other roles at the moment.

: Yeah real challenger players maintain their skill by only playing one month out of the year because logic
You can see people with less than 200 matches in Challenger. They may have smurfs but you get my point. No need to play many RANKED games or along the season. It is proven that the competition doesn't begin any sooner than autumn since I had no trouble so far. The minimun LP needed for Challenger have already risen by over 130 compared to what it was some months ago. Although it's just Flex I needed about 50 wins to reach Chall there, and in total 160 games for top 10 (800 LP). It is very easy and fast to climb if one can keep a good winrate early.
: >meanwhile in Master+ there is this merciless inactivity system that supports the fact there is no sense playing at all before it's the correct time. Pretty sure nearly every consistent Master tier+ player celebrated the new decay system. It forces people to play on their accounts if they want to remain there, and thus makes matchmaking and queue times better. Regardless, the "race to the end" has always been around, current decay system or not.
Ye but you know, I hate the system. Will never again touch SoloQ ranked before fall. Why play 800 games in spring if I'm still forced to go through more later. Why wouldn't I just time all my games I want to play in autumn instead? Error system.
: Ranked crypost volume 100
Please reward top 10 Flex players with Haribo Matador Mix candyboxes, I don't deserve any better.

: Riot expects that if you are high enough to be challenger, then you must be pretty serious. One game a day is nothing compared to what most people play.
You don't understand, I had already gone through 800 games when I decided to start chillin and play 1 per day. The point is that it's nonsense to play alot of games when it is easier and more certain to play the minimun amount needed to climb. But ofc, if being Challenger any time before it's reward time have no value, then it means there truly are no competition until late season which is another error.

: When does the Season end
Last year it was 7th of November. Preseason will start 8th of November but I don't know if ranked ends earlier than that.

: I am honestly not motivated to find it, but when RIOT announced it, they specifically said, for the sake of queue times and to prevent groups of pros from 5 manning it, after a certain level, (diamond 1) you would only be allowed to queue as solo duo. Maybe, when you pick flex it only let's you queue with one or 2, if that's the case, then I'm only slightly mistaken. But if that's the case, it's just solo/duo with a different tag.
Solo/Duo & Flex are completely different modes and have separate ladders, I cannot tell if you have yet understood this. In Solo/Duo you can play with one friend until you reach Challenger, then you have to play alone. In Flex you are allowed to go alone or as 2, 3 or 5 man premade, even if you are Challenger. Of course, in both modes there are limits with whom you can group up with (rank differences). It's that simple. ----- With my post, I'm just telling that it is incredibly easy to make it to Challenger in Flex, because people who are low diamonds in Solo/Duo have got there just like that. Therefore the rewards for that specific mode should also be worse.

: You... CAN'T reach CHALLENGER by playing FLEX. After diamond, you can only play solo/duo
http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/000/993/875/084.png Wtf is this then: http://eune.op.gg/summoner/userName=onlygragasonlygg You drunk? Both SoloQ and FlexQ has Master/Challenger tiers, you don't seem to know what you are even talking about.
Shahamut (NA)
: You realize that you can't go past diamond in flex right? This was made so to keep queue times lower in master/challenger tiers. It's a different ranked tier, it just tests a different set of skills as opposed to solo queue.
Flex tests nothing, it's just an easier version of SoloQ. It took me 50 wins to get to Challenger by playing alone there.

: Matchmaking is garbage
1300 games, 50 % WR, you just have to accept that you have found your place in the rank ladder for this year. Matchmaking might be garbage sometimes, but it's not the only reason why it feels hard to climb.
: My point is exactly that. Why do they allow an option such as "play a week before it's over and then get best rewards" exist? It contradicts with Riot's statement in a LoL Support post of mine where they said they want top players to be active the whole season. I don't see any sense here because there is no reason to play many games when it's unrewarding and inessential. Worst possible scenario of this could mean that the 200 Challengers who have been there for all season could suddenly be replaced by the "real, better Challengers" in autumn if they just have waited and let others waste their time. I know this is unlikely to happen, but you see what I mean?
What comes to to your idea... I want to play the game, but feel like I had completed my ranked many months ago and would like to just chill. The system is lacking flexibility, you really can't choose when you want to grind. Why am I forced to play on a certain part of the year to get rewards?
Octavia (EUW)
: So you're complaining you have to play the game? Here's an idea... if you don't want to play League... don't play League! What's the point of playing something you don't enjoy? The challenger bracket forces you to play that often to keep it competitive, why would they change the season length because of the challenger bracket? Just play less and drop to masters and then get challenger back at the end of the season if you're good enough. Job done.

: why does gragas get to have such brainless, reliable CC ?
His E and Q too have in fact quite long cooldowns in the early game, making it easy to harass him with ranged champs.

: if you aren't good enough to get into Challenger, you do not deserve challenger rewards.
My point is that as someone who have now been in Challenger for nearly 5 months in a row I wouldn't even need to play anymore since I have hundreds of games behind me and have been more active than most top players. Still, there is no difference between someone who just completes about 100-200 games in very late season and makes it to challenger and me who have been in there for such a long time for no reason. So, I just wanted to say that it's stupid and pointless to grind in ranked too early before the reward day because all what matters is your position on that day only.

: Why has Gragas's Body Slam hit box not been fixed yet?
Maybe Riot just doesn't have the technology/skills to do that. I bet there's a risk body slam will once again start going to pass through targets if they try to fix it.

You can still upvote this if you liked the original post, that's like giving 2 upvotes! Maybe the frontpage could be filled with these.
: This group won without a single kill and Riot bans them all for 14 days
There is no way the **enemy team** can keep you as hostages when a surrender option exists... However one of Riot's new loading screen tips says: "If someone is making you feel uncomfortable, report them." So with this logic they deserved the bans XD Remember to always report your lane opponent after you have got crushed because it obviously isn't feeling comfortable at all!!!

: Gragas' bodyslam hitbox is still atrocious.
http://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/news/game-updates/patch/patch-617-notes Before the patch above it was vice versa, it sometimes passed through targets, especially jungle monsters. But after this "bugfix", I noticed that the hitbox simply became bigger. Proof is that you can now dash through a certain wall and collide with the wolf camp. Earlier it never did hit the wolf if you jumped from the same spot.
: Gragas needs nerfs
During the past few years, they have always nerfed {{champion:79}} in autumn and buffed him back in late winter or early spring.
